...DETERRENT OPTION FLEXIBLE DETERRENT OPTION Overview Flexible deterrent options (FDO) have been used at different times and for different purposes within military operational practices. Commonly though, FDO has been said to be necessary in the provision of escalation options at the early stages of a conflict1. Because some other military actions take place at the initial stages of conflicts, which may also be targeted at escalation interventions, FDO is often differentiated from these other actions by the observance of some key principles and values. For example FDO ensures that various political, military, information and economic deterrent measures are made available to the President2... ? FLEXIBLE...

...deterrent Introduction Capital punishment is still debated because the pros and cons won’t just stop and their arguments are as old as the issue itself. But there are studies strongly suggesting that the debate should have stopped long ago because the evidence has shown that there is no deterrent effect of capital punishment, and it is only a myth. The study of Michael Radelet and Traci Lacock conducted in 2008, a confirmation of a 1996 study of the same nature, used a sample of top criminologists who were asked if the death penalty had a deterrent effect using the empirical studies that had been conducted during their time.

If we punish a criminal, it is because of what he had done to his victim, not because he was that bad and society must punish him. Criminal law states that society must judge conduct and not souls.

...Deterrent Effects of the Death Penalty: Tangible or Mythical? Introduction The death penalty, or capital punishment, is the act of granting the state power to execute an individual convicted of certain crimes. Deterrence is the idea that the example of punishing one crime can prevent future commission of crimes by the criminal or other would-be criminals (Melusky & Pesto, p. 109). General deterrence works by convincing the general public that engaging in criminal activity will be harshly punished, thus discouraging them. Specific deterrence is whereby identified criminals are prevented from committing criminal acts again....
